materials

  • Acrylic paint

  • Foam brush

  • Bubble wrap

  • Corrugated cardboard

steps

  1. Prepare the bubble wrap and corrugated cardboard by smoothing matte acrylic paint across a sheet with a foam brush.

  2. Slide a sheet of paper inside each pouch to prevent the color from bleeding through.

  3. Press it onto the painted surface.

  4. Remove and let dry before filling.

  5. As a final flourish, replace the string that comes in the pouches with ribbon.
